When I had my one year check up, I asked the dietitian if the number of RNYs were going up, down, or status quo. She said it was about the same because the program actually had a quota/ goal of RNYs that they had to meet/hit each year for each center

I am about 14 months out from RNY. I lost from 285 to 161 lowest. i am 170 today. This is because of my bad choices, giving in to temptation, not planning, and grazing/ overeating. Oh lord. I don't want to be an RNY failure after cutting up my guts

I only use straws once in a while, but I really HATE drinking water since surgery. Today was particularly tough with water intake so I thought I would give it a try with a straw and lo and behold, the water went down easier with it. I know we were tol

I haven't exercised very much. After surgery I used to walk. Then back to work and I stopped. As I type I think of how hard it was in the beginning. This journey has not been easy. It's a decision not to be taken likely. A few things:

I am 3.5 months post op. I have a really bad case of pink eye and have never had it in my life. Does the immune system get weaker after RNY surgery?

I was off today and I started the day out right with high protein in my diet. Then I had popcorn twice, butter chicken and a HUGE. Bowl of ice cream. I feel awful physically. Feels like I'm going to throw up but I won't... lots of burps you know? Oh
